Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Starting packaged game in Window mode

After I package my game and start the exe, it by default uses full screen without window. This confuses some of my users because they can't figure out how to close the game. How do I start packaged game in maximized window by default?

Product Version: UE 4.17

There's an amazing node I discovered the other day. In your GameMode, add a GetGameUserSettings node. From that you can do all sorts including changing the fullscreen mode.

Remember that Once you have retrieved the GameUserSettings reference and Set the FullScreen Mode, it will not apply the changes until you call the Apply Settings function (node) on that GameUserSettings reference.

You can change things around all you want but it won't actually take hold until you Apply Settings (which also saves changes to the .INI file it is using).
